December 31, 2004you ranger guys need to beef up ur 4 bangers! some punk last night tried me and i waited till he passed me then jumped on it. i caught up to him and wouldnt let him pass since he wanted to be a prick and drive behind me for 5 miles with his brights on. he was stuck in the passing lane for 2 miles then i had to let him over since the road was wet and the mono leaf set up isnt very road race ready so i let him on by before there was 2 greasy spots on the road. but cmon, dont test the dimes unless ur packin a 6!!!
December 31, 2004no one ever claimed that a ranger 2.3 was fast. hell the 3.0L v6s are dogs too. however the new 4 bangers...watch out. and well obviously we all know the ford 4.0L 6 will smoke a 4.3L.
December 31, 2004mine is a 95 4 banger and i will smoke a 2.2 and the 4.3 i will hang with until the end of 3rd gear which is about 70 miles a hour but they only pull me by a little bit like my fron at his door then at 85 i will starting pulling again then at 96 and above i walk them b/c they cut off and i dont v6 s10s are kinda tricky you know if i gear wrong miss gear and all but a 2.2 i will walk there ass i think imma put nos on so i call walk 4.3s
December 31, 2004i have never understood why everyone says the 2.2 s10s will out run 2.3 rangers i have never been out run by a 2.2 s10 never really even had a close call with a s10 2.2 i alwayz walk them pretty easy i wonder if my truck has something done to it i mean i bought it from someone but it still has factory intake and everything but i can outrun my friends mustang to about 70 its a v6 mustang its like between a 94-97
January 1, 2005Fear not, Mimmadog... I'm gathering parts for a 4.0 turbo swap. I have the 3-point-slow in it now. I got stomped by a chevette last week (a sad day for everyone). hehehe
January 2, 2005did you say chevette? no dude! ace- maybe your truck has some mad bawlz but im tellin ya thats the second ranger i went head to head with and the second one i beat. does the 2.3 auto suck ass? i dont know what tranny he had but i know the 2.2 auto is a POS. i know when i go against an other 2.2 5 speed i get beat, but no by much but i also have 400lbs of stereo in the bed.
January 2, 2005Yea man, chevette. I'm just holding onto the idea that he might have souped it up a little. It must have been lighter as well, cause it was REALLY rusty, almost Flintstone style. stupid 3.0
January 3, 2005i anit sure if the auto suck or not mines a str8 drive i raced a 2000 ranger 2.3 it has a differnt motor its just 4 spark plugs mine has 8 but i kicked his ass from dead stop to 90 then he pulled me a lil my front was at like his front tire or something
January 14, 2005Blah blah take youre dim self somewhere else.Why didnt we run them when you were down here.humm Yea mine is 3 litre.I will leave you J leave you.Next time youre down we can run them.Shoot come to big show in June and we can line them up.On the strip and see what ya got.
May 22, 2005i have the 2.3 auto tranny and i have beat my friends s10 with the 2.2 manual tranny 2 out of 3 times. i guess it just depends on the driver. we were dead even all 3 times his just cut off and i kept going
June 15, 2005yeah i have the 2.5 with nitrous so that takes the s dimes from the get and as for the 6 bangers i could do two things and have an all motor that could blow it out of the water
the 4 extra spark plugs on the rangers are for the exhaust gas ignition its mostly an emission thing
